Hello friends and colleagues, today I present another beautiful and interesting corner of the Granada town of Pampaneira a street covered by two so-called tinaos in passing that inclement meteorological covers the door of the houses. I hope you enjoy this interesting corner of the villa. Below some letters about the villa and tinaos.
Pampaneira is a Spanish municipality belonging to the province of Granada. It is located in Poqueira ravine in the central-western part of the Costa Tropical, about 66 km from the provincial capital. It borders the municipalities of Bubión, Capileira, La Taha, Órgiva, Carataunas and Soportújar. Much of the municipality belongs to the Sierra Nevada National Park and Historic Ensemble of Poqueira Gorge.
When the Kingdom of Granada surrendered to the Catholic Monarchs, many residents took refuge in the Alpujarras and continued for almost eighty years with their customs, religion and language. They were the Moors of Granada, who endured in their rugged mountains, until Don John of Austria, special envoy of King Philip II, ended with the violent war existed.
The subsequent depopulation was full and had to repopulate the land with Castilian alpujarreñas but especially Galicia and Leon, in an edict of 1487 was said to participate in this noble Granada War get redemption for his crimes. It was, therefore, a pressing invitation made to the nobility and their servants to abandon enrolaran Galicia and in the campaign, and they did. That is why the names of many area sites-Capileira, Poqueira, Ferreira, and Pampaneira Xumpaneira, for example-are reminiscent of Galicia.
Pampaneira continentalizado has a Mediterranean climate due to the altitude at which it is (more than 1000m) and being in the foothills of Sierra Nevada (3482m). That means it has cold winters, where it is not uncommon to have snow and ice, and a little warm summers, with extreme maximum above 35 degrees but below 40 degrees. Temperatures are softened by the presence of the Mediterranean Sea. Rainfall is variable and even abundant, with drought period in summer and cold drop in autumn.
The tinao is an architectural solution, typical of the traditional architecture of the region of La Alpujarra, in the Spanish provinces of Granada and Almeria, which creates spaces covered with semi-private or semi-public area, to have a structure of beams on the street, on the which is usually located a room or private home
The Tinao is one of the architectural elements specifically protected by the equity in the Alpujarra Historic Site, as a matter of BIC.
In a way, the tinao has commonalities with the arcades and passages (also called sheds) and in terms of its social function, with other architectural elements, such as skates Soba Valley.
There are three types of tinaos: 1 tinaos pitch, 2 tinaos in homes, 3 Tinao attached.
1 When the structure is supported beams in houses on both sides of a street, forming a passage under it, public and passable. In some localities, as Atalbéitar or Fondales (La Taha), the tinaos placed one after the other, make spaces of great length, and relevance.
2 In some cases, arranged in tinaos "pouch", under the structure of a single housing. In such cases usually give tinao, which functions as a vestibule, access to the house itself and the block and other parts of the house. Although tinao is open, always, the public space, in such cases usually have a semi-private use, as a meeting place and rest.
It also applies, improperly, to the name of tinao rooms open to the street, which exist in some homes, as a covered terrace.
3 There are several examples of tinaos arranged parallel to the facade of the dwelling, building structure beams in the house itself and pillars of masonry or brick (not wood), to arcade mode. It is in such cases, a semi-public space use and usually do not get up on them but a kind of room open terrace.

ottima foto in una situazione di luce molto difficile per i dorti contrasti tra luce ed ombra.
Bella la composizione con le diagonali della parete e ricca di colore per i vasi che la adornano.
La tua Andalusia non finisce mai di stupire!
Ciao e buona serata

This is a very nice view of this corner with all the potted plants on the wall. The oblique line gives a good POV and the light entering under the tinaos enhances the colors and gives very good sharpness.

a wonderful composition that has created a very attractive graphical environment for this lovely collection of flower pots. Your idea was superb and I like very much the way you carried on and realized it despite the extremely contrasting and challenging lighting conditions. The colours are very pleasing and you've achived delightful clarity theoughout. The effect created by this rich orchestration of perspectives is superb. Congratulations and thank you!

Hola amigo Angel.
Creia que conocia bien Pampaneira, pero me estas descubriendo preciosos y nuevos rincones, sensacional la perspectiva de esta calle cubierta e ideal la fachada de esta casa llena de macetas.
Has gestionado muy bien las luces y sombras, que no eran faciles en esta composicion.
Es un precioso trabajo amigo mio y me gusta.
Te estoy escribiendo muy tarde, para ponerme un poco al dia, pues he pasado estos dias en la sierra.
Pues mañana he quedado con Serghei y ManuMay para hacer una escursion, asi que le dare recuerdos tuyos.
Feliz inicio de semana.
Un fuerte abrazo.

Une jolie façon de garnir le mur blanc, le jeu ombre et de lumière et le bon cadrage, une image pleine de charme super bien présenter

precioso rincón de la callejuela de Pampaneira, un pueblo encantador del que he visto otras fotos aquí.
Su gran fotogenia debida a la blancura de las casas tradicionales y la espléndida decoración con los maceteros en las fachadas, crean una imagen muy atractiva, con el plus añadido por la luz y las sombras.
Gran foto, amigo mío.
PD: no pudo ser, quizá el año que viene, pero como bien comentas, la genial frase de El Gallo define perfectamente al mal partido.
Aprovecho para felicitarte por adelantado en tu tercer aniversario aquí. Voy a estar fuera el fin de semana y no podría hacerlo el día 11.
